1. Watch and practice using the link below.

2.Read through the notes and examples below.

3. Practice on thatquiz (***fractions must be in lowest terms)

4. Textbook p.187 has examples. Practice p.188-189 Q. 1, 2,3,4,8,9,10,11,12,13

5. Textbook p.191-2 has examples . Practice p.192-193 (don't worry about using base ten blocks or shading hundredths grid) Q. 1-6 and 8-11

6. There will also be a brainpop on percents for you to try. https://www.brainpop.com/dashboard/assignments/23b5850d18a62404/periods/...

Percents are **part to whole ratios** where the second term is out of 100. For example 34:100 means 34%. Percents are used to easily compare ratios as the whole is the same (100).

Percents, fractions, and decimals are all different ways to represent a part to whole relationship. 20 % = 0.20 = 20/100 Percents can be written as decimals by dividing by 100. (ex, 4% = 0.04)

Decimals can be written as percents by multiplying by 100. (ex. 0.9 = 90%)

Percent can be written as fractions by using 100 as the denominator. (ex. 36% = 36/100) Usually fractions are written in lowest terms. So 36/100 would be 9/25 after dividing the numerator and denominator by 4.

Fractions can be written as percents by making an equivalent fraction out of 100. ( ex. 3/4 = 75/100 multiply both numerator and denominator by 25. 75/100 then can be written as 75% )
